European publisher Focus Home Interactive have announced Of Orcs and Men, a new role playing game being co-developed by the Paris-based Spiders and Cyanide Studio who are most well-known for their Bloodbowl fantasy-themed football games.
Of Orcs and Men first puts you into the role of an elite Orc soldier from the legendary legion of Bloodjaws, a league of warriors deeply involved in the war opposing the Orcs and Goblins on one side to their persecutors, Humankind. As a veteran warrior who has seen the most brutal of battles, you are appointed by the Orc commander to complete a mission that could change the course of the war: kill the one man responsible for all of this bloodshed, the one who has, for years, exhorted the human masses to loath and fight the green-skinned people: the Emperor himself.
Four screenshots accompany the announcement which reportedly "give an early preview into a brutal world at war, where the Empire of Men’s oppressive threat looms over the territories of the Orcs and the Goblins". You can check those out at our new Of Orcs and Men game page
